So Just What Would A Jordan Sneaker From adidas Look Like?

(I think this would be an interesting contest… yes?)

I would love to know what a adidad version of the Air Jordan (well, I guess it wouldn’t be “Air”… maybe “bounce” or something) would look like. The Shoe Game posted the video first and the comments on the video is crazy, but the one thing really left out was what WOULD it really look like.

So I was thinking of doing some of my own doodles and come up with a adidas line for Micheal Jordan…. but then I was thinking why not also ask the Shoe Game communitty to come up with some concepts? Heck, why not also ask some of those artists at the Kicks On Fire community and maybe NikeTalk  too and see what they come up with.

So I am going to ask, and then post it. I  guess people can vote on which adidas Jordan is the best or most likely to have happened. Until then, enjoy your holiday weekend! I am sure most of the sneakernets and the shoelovers are away for the weekend so it will be a slow weekend, but take heart because Tuesday is when it all starts all over again!


You Probably Know This Already: Air Jordan 6 Rings Released

As seen on Eastbay.com and a few other sites (Finishline and Footlocker to name a couple). The Six Ring Bred (Bread as I call them… not that I have any authority to do so LOL) is one of the most popular searches on my blog so I am guessing that these will be a sleeper hit (I say sleeper hit because there were not many nice comments about the sneaker for the most part on sneaker blog sites… sort of half and half). There is even a Digg.com post on it that actually got 52 votes, of which is surprising because Digg is a tech site fo the most part.

I have also seen many people wearing them today, even 2 couples (of which is not that common to see such a thing). People seem to really like tham and I will admit that they look WAY better in person.

WAY better in person.

Details of the sneaker from Eastbay:

The Jordan 6 Rings incorporates key features from each shoe that MJ wore while stacking up the Championship rings for the Chicago Bulls. Celebrate the history of Jordan with this hybrid design that takes its cues from six legendary Jordan shoe styles. It’s made with a full-grain leather, synthetic leather and engineered mesh upper, with details like the lacelock and heel loop from the Jordan VI, a huarache-style inner sock from the Jordan VII and a fuzzy tongue logo and VELCRO® brand fastener from the Jordan VIII. The midsole, a full-length Phylon™ unit with Zoom Air™ in the heel and forefoot, was inspired by the Jordan XIII. The entire upper silhouette gets its design from the Jordan XI while the “TWO3” script on the tongue and metal lace loops on top are taken from the Jordan XII. The outsole is a combination of solid and clear rubber, which created performance traction with superior style.

I love reading these descriptions. sometimes they are really into the sneaker, and sometimes… well lets just say that you get a one line description that basically says that this is a sneaker lol

Here is the breakdown of the sneaker, thanks to KicksonFire.com:

So first we had the Dub Zero, then we had the Spizike, not we have the 6 Ring. I wonder what is next? I think the next time they do this, they should call them Monster Game or something like that (I’m usually good at coming up with names but I’m tires lol). There is another color coming our way in January. Check out what that will look like here.

Air Jordan 6 Rings CONCORD coming soon in October

The Retro Movement continues!

PS

I still say that I need more 14’s in my life. He was wearing them for the last shot and he was a Bull while wearing them and at peak form, so I think as a thank you we should get some black and red DMP (defining moment pack).


Michael Jordans Greatest Dunks

From PuttinUon

Saw this on YouTube.com and I just had to post it. it is missing one dunk… then again its not really a dunk so i guess that is why it wasn’t on there (but it still was a GREAT SHOT).  When I finally finish my Air Jordan page here on Sneakers & Shoes, I will be sure to put this on there.

PuttinUon put up allot of info for the video… here is a clip:

Michael Jeffrey Jordan (born February 17, 1963) is a retired American professional basketball player and active businessman. He is widely considered the greatest basketball player of all time, and was among the most effectively marketed athletes of his generation. Jordan was instrumental in popularizing the National Basketball Association (NBA) around the world in the 1980s and 1990s.

The video doesn’t dissapoint. Oh and I am sure you are wondering what shot I am talking about that I though should have been on the video (even though its not actually a dunk)

Well here it is:

BEST ANIMATED GIF EVAR

Best animated gif EVAR!!! LOL

Good lawd, i wish I could remember why he switched hands on that jump. he was so high in the air, i don’t think there was anybody even close to the ball or his hand. He must have saw something to make him think that he needed to switch.
